Happy Sunday to all of our travel friends, both near and far. Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
- The novel coronavirus caused many locations to relax certain restrictions to help keep small businesses from closing. Several of those had to do with alcohol sales. New York City allowed restaurants to sell alcohol to-go and now Atlantic City is letting people drink on The Boardwalk. Who knows if these changes will become permanent, but I bet both patrons and business owners hope that they will.
- We love to visit Key West. While the Florida Keys were closed to tourists for a while, they are opening back up, with some changes. We’re not experts on the area but the people on this podcast are and they give some insights to the small island and several of the yearly events that usually take place.
- In our yearly ranking of US airlines for 2019, Allegiant ranked 9th out of 9. That’s last if your counting. Their recent position that they are not going to require guests to wear face masks, but merely make the suggestion for passengers to use them makes me wonder if there’s a way if I could lower them to 10th on my list.
- When news broke that you could book a free room at the Wynn in Las Vegas, I said that I wouldn’t stay there, even if it was free because of my past experience with them. Turns out I was right because not only were all of those free nights canceled, the hotel accused those who booked them of fraud. When called on their response, the Wynn did walk back the fraud claim and take responsibility for the error, but I’m still never going to stay there again.
- Air travel is starting to recover, so it’s not surprising that airport lounges are reopening. Several of “The Club” locations are reopening at the end of June or early July, including the Airside 1 location in Orlando Airport. This is surprising as this location is home to many of the international flights as well as flights from JetBlue and Frontier. Maybe it’s because that business is recovering faster than that at the terminal mainly operated by Delta. Food for thought.
